Artist Statement . . .

“I am passionate about the unfound joy and beauty in the world all around us. A lifetime of experience has built the foundation upon which my artistry rests. The transition from film to digital has been enlightening and I have not looked back since making the leap. I devote my free time to photography whenever I can.

Sometimes I like to create beauty strictly for the sake of beauty. Beauty makes one feel better, it rests the soul, it provides respite from a challenging world. Sometimes I just like to fool around with the camera and have fun for the sake of fun, but the results are still joyful and thoughtful.

I work in both monochrome and color, and will often combine the two. Some shots are painstakingly set up, others are off the fly. Some shots are taken thousands of miles away, others are taken right in my own backyard. There is so much to see and capture, it's all real, and is found all around us—-you don't have to go far.

Beauty is everywhere, even within ourselves, and it is my privilege to share this joy through my art. If I have touched just one viewer in a meaningful way, then I consider my job done.”
